Sweet Summer Thanks

A couple weeks ago I received an unexpected e-mail, the type that made me stop and ask myself if I really was reading the e-mail correctly.  Today is the first Saturday of the month...many of you may realize that is when Jen Del Muro's monthly Sketch For You To Try is revealed.  I am so very excited and honored to be June's guest designer.  

I have been a fan of SFYTT for a looong time. Jen Del Muro's blog was one of the first blogs that I found when I ventured out onto the web to look for ideas.  This card is dedicated to Jen, Susan Liles, and everyone on the SFYTT team.  Thank you for having me as a guest this month, you really did make me smile!

I was lucky enough to get to play with goodies from this month's sponsor Lil' Inker Designs
Visit Our Store!
 The cat, sentiments, and flag die are all from Lil' Inker Designs.  Let me just add that I bought a few more goodies as I was checking out the store.   I highly recommend heading over there and browsing, there are so many innovative dies, not to mention cute stamps!

So are you ready to play along?  Here is the sketch...

Now on to all the challenge details...

Head on over to Jen's blog and link up your own take on the sketch.

This card is also for the Moxie Fab World Gingham Challenge - gingham clouds add a wee bit of whimsy (or at least that is what I was aiming for!).

Phew...thanks for staying with me until the end! 


Details:  Stamps - Lil' Inker Designs (2 Cute Ink - Cutie Cat), PP - Simple Stories, CS - PTI, Sentiment Flag Die - Lil' Inker Designs, Cloud Die - Your Next Stamp,  Ink - Momento Tuxedo Black, Button - PTI, Copics, and twine from May Arts.
